The casino, currently accessed via Watson Street, has spent £150,000 on the design and construction of the new entrance on the first floor of the Grade 2* listed building, giving customers direct access from Great Northern Square alongside fellow tenants AMC Cinemas and Virgin Active.

The new entrance designed by Newcastle-based Dakota House of Design, responsible for the original refurbishment design in 1998, took a month to construct and will offer the public a chance to see inside the casino for the first time.

Manchester235’s Venue Director Austin Graham said: “This new entrance means a huge increase in visibility for Manchester235. It has far greater impact in terms of its design than our current entrance and is situated in a much more strategic location. It’s a striking addition and one we believe will dramatically increase footfall.”
